Tasting Notes

Nose

Aromas of Jamaican gingerbread, funky farmyard (similar to Brettanomyces), rubber and orange juice mingle with sea breeze and sticking plasters.

Palate

Initially soft and sweet, with juicy orange, nutmeg, powdered cinnamon and ginger, before a salt-lined stick of charcoal draws a line across the palate. Pine resin and Szechuan pepper pop up too.

Finish

The gingerbread cake makes a comeback, with 70 per cent dark chocolate.

Comment

The nose is a little peculiar at first, but the solid flavours put those doubts to rest.
